This week we started the migration from the old building that houses our office and labs to the shiny new one that still isn't quite done (there still aren't doorknobs on most offices and labs yet).

One of the nice features of the new building is the chemical handling area at the end of the hall by the labs. They're nicely equipped with an eyewash station and a chemical safety shower. However they did not install a drain for the safety shower.

Note that's not a they forgot - they consciously didn't install one. Apparently 'The Powers That Are' made a cost benefit analysis that the issues raised with having possibly hazardous chemicals washed down a drain in an emergency were less than the issues with having the water pool on the floor, possibly get into labs and having to be cleaned up later. (Not to mention the issue if one of these showers springs a leak.....)

*facepalm*

Fortunately none of the labs I work in is all that close to the chemical handling area.
